Decided to hit Trinity last night with the wife as we haven't been in years. Word of warning, check to see if there is an event going on at the Dunk, or be prepared to walk a few blocks if you don't want to pay for parking. Nice pub atmosphere; the place was hopping due to a P-Bruins game going on, making it a bit difficult to hear. Service was friendly and prompt and the food was decent, as it has always been IMO. I had the brewers burger, the wife had the falafel salad and we were not disappointed. Draft selection was decent, but not much range (I think they had 5 or 6 offerings - imperial pilsner, pale ale, IPA, can't remember the rest), but not much of a dark beer selection and abv's were pretty low for the most part (around 4.5%). I had the Belgian White and the Porter (Trinity contract brews the porter for Narragansett). Both were pretty good, but I would have to say I favored the porter (seemed like more of a dry stout in flavor and texture) over the Belgian. The quality of the beers have varied over the years, depending on the brewer at the time, but I was pretty pleased with the offerings I tried. Prices are reasonsable; had 3 drinks, 2 entrees and an appetizer for $40 (included tip). Definitely worth stopping in if you are in Providence.

Walked by three staff and waited at the bar. Took awhile before being greeted (not busy either). Bar keep was only friendly when delivering the check. Took our to-go food home after our beer. they gave a slice of fish instead of a fish sandwich. Called and the manager said she wouldn't do anything because it "is just a couple slices of bread." oh, and the food was gross. Seriously, a fish sandwich from somewhere fast food would have been better.

Nice looking pub... English feel to it. Bar seats about 20 with dining areas at both ends...maybe a dozen plus tables. Seven beers on tap, nothing exciting. Food was pretty bad...turkey burger tasted like bologna.

Average pub atmosphere with an outside seating area along the street. Service was average, nothing out of the ordinary. They had about 8 of their beers on tap. I had three, two were forgettable, the IPA was a bit above average. The food, I had the pulled pork nachos, were very good actually.

Providence is like if Boston survived a suicide attempt. And not one of those sissyboy attempts, like sleeping pills. More like one of those guys who somehow manages to fuck up a shotgun in the mouth. It's still New England--got the awful traffic and hideous accent and even the meathead jocks are genuinely tolerant--but there's no natural or architectural background to bring this New Englandness into sensible relief. It's just... this place. With things in it.

Trinity is a chill, super old school brewpub just around the block from the place where Hasbro makes all sorts of cool toys. I *think* this was downtown Providence--I drove by what passes for their skyline to get here--but I can't say for sure.

Anyhow, this was 5:30 on a Friday and the crowd was sparse but happy. The building is ancient and woody and the acoustics are pleasantly weird. Regulars joked loudly at the bar and the waitstaff were very friendly. There's TVs above the bar and downstairs has a second bar and a pool table. Lots of old banners and RI-centric beer schwag.

There were 8 or so house offerings on tap along with a couple of local ciders and some hard liquor.

The beers were very old school and very brewpubby. Even the Citra IPA had a English-tasting backbone. This probably won't be up to your tastes if you just got into craft beer in the past few years, but if you adjust your expectations you should walk away satisfied. Not *super pleased* , but satisfied. The beer is okay.

One of the first places I fell in love with when I moved to Prov 10 years ago. Growlers of their Belgian Strawberry are like gold. And when they changed their menu and the Jerk Chicken Sandwich was taken off, the awesome chef was nice enough to always make it for me.

I always love Wing Night downstairs at Trinity. There's always some interesting people to watch too. I await their Strawberry Belgian each summer...and there's never ever enough :)
